I was terrified when I opened the door and thought, 'Oh my God, does someone still live here?'

'Documentary Pix: Philadelphia, a Century of Change," now at the Free Library of Philadelphia, is a vivid reminder of the rich trove of images in the central library's ever-expanding print and picture collection.
